Well there ya go, Adrian.  I am more a dog person myself but the image shows that a hurricane can be a good thing.


Over time, we recognize that human populations increase and that consequently the demand for water increases.  In the USA, we already have one once-mighty river that no longer makes it all the way to the sea: the Colorado.

It is easy enough for me to see that eventually the Sacramento and most rivers will no longer flow to the sea.  We will use all of that water, for fresh water will be too valuable to dump into the sea.  We will pour it through crops, forests, toilets and food beasts before dropping back from where it came.
